Dear Soldiers of the Cross,
As I write this final prayer letter for the year 2020, I can mark it down as the most troublesome year in memory. Just like the past 3 years, this year started off with an uproar throughout our nation over President Trump. Then in March we had the outbreak of coronavirus also known as covid-19. At present we have 14,63,914 cases in the USA with 281,253 deaths. I can truly say this is beyond my imagination. But through all of this, I have peace in knowing that I serve a God that is in control, and none of this has taken HIM by surprise. If He allows me to see another year, I will continue serving Him, by taking the Gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost and dying world and assuring them that He is the way, the truth, and the light.
Our plans for the upcoming year, 2021, is to continue with our projects that were cancelled this past year. We have no control over all that is going on today but we are trusting God to make a way for us to continue to reach our Native people.
I would like to thank each one of you that have stood with us in the ministry this past year through your financial giving and prayers. Without you we could not do what we do for the glory of God.
As we are reminded of the greatest gift ever given and received, we give thanks to God for the gift of his dear Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Let us not forget that Jesus is the gift of Christmas and that without him we would not have the peaceful promise of eternal life. We wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
As We Labor for Christ,
Gerry & Sheril Locklear
